Maserati Alfieri concept, first presentation
Maserati Alfieri concept, first presentation. Geneva.5.03.14
dopting an appealing curvaceous styling approach with elegant lines, the
Alfieri 2+2 concept is based on Maserati's GranTurismo MC Stradale but has
a 24cm shorter wheelbase which makes us think the company is plotting a new
entry-level model. The design of the concept takes its inspiration from
classic cars such as the 1957 3500 GT and the 1959 5000 GT. The concept
seen here is 4590mm long, 1,930mm wide and 1,280mm tall, with a 2,700mm
wheelbase and specially developed 20-inch front / 21-inch rear wheels.
Its heart and soul is a naturally-aspirated V8 4.7-liter engine outputting
460 bhp (343 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) at 4,750 rpm delivered
to the road via a six-speed gearbox and a limited-slip differential. Behind
the retro-looking alloys are MC Stradale-sourced carbon ceramic disc brakes
with blue Brembo brake calipers.
Inside it has a 2+2 arrangement with an open-space cargo area and Aniline
leather upholstery also found on the central console and dashboard. The
cabin has been beautified with copper highlights while single-piece
aluminum billets were used to create the gearbox lever, oval clock and seat
profile inserts. The aluminum-made steering wheel spokes, gearbox paddles
and pedals have received a palladium hue.
Lamborghini Huracan, technical story
Lamborghini Huracan, technical story, present by Maurizio Reggiani
Lamborghini has officially unveiled the Huracan LP 610-4 at the Geneva
Designed to replace the Gallardo, the Huracan is named after a fighting
bull that showed "outstanding courage and strong sense of attack."
As for the car itself, it has an aggressive exterior that borrows cues from
the Aventador and Sesto Elemento. Notable highlights include full LED
headlights, aggressive air intakes and a four tailpipe Exhaust system.
The interior is significantly improved with higher quality materials and
modern components. However, the biggest change is a 12.3-inch digital
instrument cluster that shows all the useful information as well as
infotainment and navigation data.
Power is provided by a 5.2-liter V10 engine that develops 610 HP (448 kW)
and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed dual
clutch transmission and an all-wheel drive system. This setup enables the
car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 0-200 km/h
in 9.9 seconds and on to a top speed in excess of 325 km/h (202 mph). The
model also has an engine start/stop system which enables the car to average
12.5 L/100km (18.8 mpg US / 22.5 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 290 g/km.
Lamborghini is currently accepting orders and the first deliveries are
slated to occur this spring.

"The Toyota GT 86 is a fun to drive coupe with a much-needed dose of
top gear jeremy clarkson's Car of the Year Toyota GT86
top gear jeremy clarkson's Car of the Year Toyota GT86
You thought Jeremy would immediately pick the most expensive or most
powerful car here, didn't you? Well, he didn't... he picked one of the
cheapest and least powerful. But he had his reasons. The Toyota GT86 is a
new way of looking at an old problem: how to have fun in a reasonably
priced car. Now, TG has a long association with cheap thrills, but the GT86
tries very hard to re-educate a generation of hot-hatch motorists on the
joys of rear-wheel drive. And it succeeds, by being exciting, relatively
cheap and accessible to mere mortals. It's good, people. Be excited."I like
the GT86 because it's come barrelling into the bottom end of the
marketplace with a big dirty smile on its face and a suggestion in the way
it stands that it wants to have fun with your middle parts. It's a car
designed for one thing only: fun."
